Cas Blomberg reading the rune stone at Botkyrka Kyrka, in Botkyrka, Sweden

I could tell you about my past. About my time as a police officer, or working for a greeting card company. I could tell you about the years I spent working for the newspaper. Or about how this southerner packed up everything and moved to Sweden. But that’s all in the past, and the past–well, the past can’t be changed until a working time machine pops up. Right here, right now, that’s what matters. Isn’t it?

This moment.

I won’t waste your time any more. I’m a writer.

Characters live in my head. Sometimes they fight, sometimes they scream, sometimes they laugh and sometimes they weep. They all have a story. My job is to write down those stories. Because they knew you’d be coming . . . and they want you to hear their voices, feel their hope, and fight their struggles with them.

Click on the Books page to find details about my published works and read about what I’m working on at the moment.

On the blog page you’ll find a slew of posts about life, culture, dreams, rants, and encouragement. I hope you’ll find something you like.

If you’re interested in a sample of my writing, check out Jakob’s Journal. I try to post new entries weekly.

Coffee Tastes Better Than Hate

  My Facebook feed feels like a battleground. Can we all try to remember that if we say hateful things about people who disagree with us (you or me, Christians or homosexuals), we haven’t grown much as a people and love hasn’t won? Try to celebrate, or make your point, without putting others down, calling … Continue reading

Why Do I Write?

I’ve seen this question asked, and answered, about a hundred times. I’m always curious to discover what motivates other people. I’ve laughed when I read the responses. Like Natalie Goldman who answers, ‘Because I’m a jerk.’ (She has a host of other reasons, but for some reason this one made me laugh. Perhaps because I … Continue reading

Tracking Submissions

I’ve been submitting work to magazines since the days of paper submissions. If you’re too young to remember that period of time, this is how it worked: 1) Buy the latest copy of Writer’s Market.  2) Spend hours looking up markets accepting unsolicited work, who happen to accept the genre you’ve written in, and are looking for … Continue reading

Margaret Atwood comes to Sweden

It all started with a short story I wrote at the end of last year. I wrote it for fun. I had no plan in mind when I began, only a first line–one of ten I came up with for a writing exercise. A voice came next. One that had something to say, but she … Continue reading

Crooked Things

Most people like symmetry. Balance. Things that line up together. Not me. Give me crooked any day. A crooked car would be difficult to drive. But a crooked house, as long as it had a stable foundation, would be awesome! Crooked art. Asymmetrically designed furniture. Uneven earrings. These are things worth talking about, worth noticing … Continue reading

Every Writer Needs Little Helpers

Have you ever been plugging along, in the middle of a great escape scene, only to realize you weren’t alone? Someone else was there, perhaps watching your every move? Most of the time these unexpected visitors are harmless. They show up and inspire you. They remind you of words you pulled out of the depths of … Continue reading

A Short Look at Agendas

The past few months have been interesting. I’ve stuck to my plan, for the most part. But the plan changed. I knew it would. The plan always changes. It grows bigger. Curves down unexpected paths, and the chance to find honeysuckles or weeds is probably equal. If I’m lucky the path leads to an exciting … Continue reading
